Can I drink alcohol being on aspirin or xarelto?

Can I drink alcohol being on aspirin or xarelto?

Not best, both slow: Blood clotting. Aspirin inhibits platelet activation; Xarelto inhibits clot formation. Both Rxed because of evidence/concern of forming clots inside blood vessels, not just at blood vessel breaks, thus bleeding is ↑ed because slows clotting at all locations.

Is rivaroxaban xalerto safe and good drug for preventing stroke in Afib compared to aspirin and plavix (clopidogrel) together in72 yr man with hypertension, s.cr1.56?

Is rivaroxaban xalerto safe and good drug for preventing stroke in Afib compared to aspirin and plavix (clopidogrel) together in72 yr man with hypertension, s.cr1.56?
